A Message from the Lords, by Doctor Aylett and Doctor Heath;

The Lords have commanded us to recommend unto you a Petition of Major Graye's Brother: Major Gray is a Gentleman who hath done very good Service: It was formerly sent to this House; and they do desire it may be taken into Consideration. The Lords did formerly send down a Vote for Colonel Barrowe to be Governor of Barklay-Castle, wherein there was an Omission: And they do desire, that the Committee of both Kingdoms may give a Commission. The Lords have long since, upon a Report to them from the Committee of the West, did recommend unto them, That Captain Hutchins should be paid what is due to him by the Committee of the Navy; and, having received no Answer, the Lords do earnestly recommend the Person who hath deserved so very well by his faithful Service unto the State; his whole Livelihood consisting herein, and a general Cry of the Seamen thereupon.

Answer returned by the same Messengers;

The House hath considered your Message; and will send Answer by Messengers of their own.
